Avoid Naming Pear Note Files

If you create a lot of documents, coming up with a name for them can sometimes be a hassle. This is especially true now that search is becoming a more prevalent way to find documents. Pear Note provides a way to have the application automatically generate a filename so you can avoid this hassle. To use this:

  1. Open Saving under Pear Note's preferences.
  2. Select a default save location.
  3. Select a default save name template (Pear Note's help documents all the fields that can be automatically filled in).
  4. Check the box stating that Command-S saves without prompting.
  5. If you decide you want to name a particular note later, just use Save As... instead.

Take Control News: Save with MacSanta Discounts

Send Article to a Friend

On Tuesday, 18-Dec-07, you can save 20 percent on all Take Control ebooks as part of the month-long MacSanta promotion. Just enter the coupon code MACSANTA07 in our cart when ordering on that day to receive your discount. If you miss ordering on the 20-percent-off day, you can still save 10 percent with coupon code MACSANTA07TEN for all orders through 31-Dec-07. (While you're there, be sure to check out all the other products available at discount!)

Note that we usually embed coupon codes in our URLs to make things easier for you, but that wasn't possible in this case, so you'll need to copy a coupon code above, paste it into the Coupon Code field in the upper-right corner of our eSellerate-based shopping cart, and click the Enter Coupon button to apply it to your subtotal.

And remember, you can give one of our ebooks as a last-minute gift easily. Just place your order, download the PDF, and then send it to the recipient as a normal email attachment. Make sure to explain how to click the Check for Updates link to look for information about updates.
